Southport Mild Trail 2019

Click on picture to enlarge the map.
In May Southport and West Lancs CAMRA is running the Southport Mild Trail. Eight local pubs have agreed to offer customers a cask conditioned mild option for the whole month of May. The participating pubs are: 
  • The Beer Den.
  • The Bold Arms (Churchtown). 
  • The Cheshire Lines. 
  • The Corridor. 
  • The Grasshopper.
  • The Guest House.
  • Southport & Birkdale Sports Club.
  • The Windmill. 
Join the Mild Trail either by using the card printed in the local CAMRA magazine 'Ale and Hearty' or by picking up a Mild Trail card (as shown above) at any of the eight pubs, ordering cask mild at each participating pub and asking them to stamp the card. Completed cards will be included in a draw with a chance to win one of the prizes listed on the local CAMRA website.
